Do not Purchase - Google this model plus "Power Adapter"

David Lear "Dave", Amazon
28 February 2013
  • Summary: What a great sounding radio! Unfortunate to the many who purchased it there is a defect internally that disconnects AC power and renders the box useless. Mine would not power up so I borrowed a friends cord (same model) and it was still dead.

Updating my 5 star review

musicgal, Amazon
16 September 2012
  • Summary: Bought this boom box in December 2010. Worked great, sounded AWESOME -- loved it so much that I bought the newer version, the IMT810 for my son in November 2011 as a Christmas gift. As of today, both units crapped out.

UPDATE: DO NOT BUY

William Albeck, Amazon
22 July 2011
  • Summary: I'm lowering my rating from 4 to 1 stars because the device no longer works and is essentially expensive garbage. I'm disappointed to say the least. After working for about a year and a half, the A/C power stopped functioning.

Broken Down in Two Weeks

Lester R. Laforce "lester laforce", Amazon
12 June 2010
  • Summary: Purchased this from Amazon.com and received it on May 28, 2010. After only two weeks of use, the unit began to fail to power-on or play any audio (radio or recordings).

Go ahead and believe the good reviews

Yalda T. Uhls, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • Summary: When the 25-cent jack for the AC adapter in the back of the boom box breaks -- and it will -- because it's a 25-cent part -- the boom box will NOT WORK with the AC plugged-in. You'll have to run it off EIGHT D-size BATTERIES -- and, while doing so, it will NOT RECHARGE the MP3 device, iPod, iPhone,...

Burned twice by power cord failure

DanceTeacher, Amazon
31 May 2010
  • Summary: We loved our Altec Lansing boom box, while it worked. After less than 1 year, the connection port for the AC cord failed. I contacted the company, and instead of fixing the port, and after a number of mistakes on their part, they did send us a complete replacement unit.

30 May 2010
  • Summary: This is an excellent box but a problem with the power supply renders it unusable after a year and a half... Of course, out of warranty by the time it happens.

Poor product and customer service

berkmon, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: Bought an IMT800 in Jan.2011 and it lasted a couple of months before it went down with the same power supply/cord issue that many others have complained about. The first time we dealt with Altec's customer service it was good and they sent us an iMT800 replacement unit.

Boom box full of issues!

Bill, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: Three days after the warrantee was up, the unit stopped working with the power cord. Like many people that has had this issue, and I got no where with customer service. I read enough on forums to know Altec Lansing has to know they have a defective product.

Avoid at all cost! Rip off

Nicolas Boullet, Amazon
30 May 2010
  • Summary: Product broke 3 months after purchase after moderate use. I contacted customer service 3 times, and they responded with an automatic meaningless template and did nothing about it. Poor product quality and poor customer service. I would not recommend buying the product.
